Welcome!

        We here at First Presbyterian Church of La Grange, Texas want to thank you for dropping in to our website.  If you are a “frequent flyer” to this page, we hope you will let us know if anything is incorrect or out-of-date.  If this is your first time to check us out, we hope that you will go to the various menus and learn more about our mission opportunities, our people, and our programs. My wife Pam and I came to La Grange to retire, but the spiritual energy and people dynamic here drew me out of retirement to be the pastor of this wonderful church!

        So look closely, I think you just might find just the place where God wants you to be …

Lit Wit Changes

The LitWits Book Club is a group of people from across Fayette County.  Our next meeting will be on August 2, 2016 at 5:00.  We are suggesting that we meet at Reba’s (in the back room) for book discussion and then stay on for dinner.  Many of us were doing this after bookclub, so why not just start out there with your wine and cheese, etc.  Get back to me with your thoughts and kick your “reading horse” into a gallop; Hamilton will take awhile to get through.  Don’t forget to send me your book selections for the balance of the year.

Blessings,
Jerry

. Any one interested in joining these lively discussions is welcome to attend. 

89th Annual Fayette County Fair Parade

The 89th Annual Fayette County Labor Day Fair Parade is in the making.  This year's theme is "Hawaiian Paradise"  Should be easy to do a float for that, the Easter Cross, a grass hut for shade, muu muus, grass skirts, beautiful plants and wonderful Presby's.  The Float judging is at 9 AM on Sept 3rd with the parade (all adults on board for the judging) and starting at 10:15AM (all children on board by 10:10)  The parade committee will assign number and location just before Labor Day so stay tuned for that info early on Sat.  We had a great time last year.  Let Bobbie or Juanita know if you're interested in helping decorate the float and/or riding on it.

Blessing of the Quilts and Church Picnic

Sunday Oct. 9 come celebrate the Blessing of the Quilts before they start their journey south.  And just to make it more festive, it's time for the annual church picnic.  Fried chicken an dbeferages provided.  Please bring a salad, side dish or dessert.  Right after church services.
